Originally a string quartet formed at the Reykjavík College of Music in the late 1990s, amiina went on to cut their teeth as Sigur Rós' string section for the next decade.
Join amiina for the UK premiere of their latest adventure, Fantômas. Originally composed as a live score to the silent masterpiece from 1913, amiina's members decided right from the start that the music would also be able to stand on its own, independent of the visual narrative. For this performance Fantômas will be screened, and the piece played as a live score.
Melancholic and ethereal, yet full of suspense and pounding rhythms; the piece is full of contrasts - from darkness and utter terror to heavenly melodies. The music is thoughtfully composed, with recurring themes and leitmotifs building up a delicate structure that links the piece into one entity. Violin, cello, drums, percussion, metallophone, table harp, ukulele and electronics are the source material for the sound world of amiina here, with intelligent and imaginative use made of the different instruments and their varied and endless textures.
